Forestry Judging begins each August and runs through until the contest. This is in preparation for the District Forestry Field Day Contest at the Thompson Mill Arboretum. Forestry Field Day gets 4-H’ers outside learning fundamental skills that foresters use each day to manage our forests to provide wood products, wildlife habitats, clean air, and scenic views. Youth learn to identify up to 70 tree species found in Georgia and learn about some of the most common insects and diseases that impact our forests. Pacing and compass skills are honed. These skills, along with using specialized forestry tools, allow youth to estimate timber volume. Participants have the opportunity to be a part of the Habersham County 4-H team and complete in the area and state forestry judging contests. For more information or to sign up contact us.
